Alumni Relations

Dear Alumnus,

Alumni Relations had planned a most exciting and informative range of activities for 2021. However, due to the prevailing pandemic we have had to unfortunately place everything on hold. We miss our interactions - via a variety of events - with our many graduates in South Africa, neighbouring countries and abroad and hope that we will soon be able to meet safely and interact as we have done in previous years.

We have however still interacted with thousands of graduates through emails, written and telephonic communication as well as via various social media platforms and numerous webinars.

The country specific Facebook pages for alumni based in the United Kingdom, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Lesotho are active. Please let us know if you would like to join these Facebook groups.  There has also been considerable interest in the main Facebook page for all alumni - please do not forget to like us! Please see webinar invitations and other notices on the main Facebook page.

Communication via the websiteFacebookTwitter and SMS has increased and is an effective way of informing graduates of UKZN issues/activities. The alumni Linkedin page has been closed, you can now join us on the UKZN Linkedin page. In order to keep everyone updated on University events – we are eager to secure the current contact details of alumni – especially email addresses and mobile telephone numbers. Also, please encourage any friends or relatives who are graduates and have not received any correspondence from the University in recent months to provide us with their updated contact details. This can be done via a quick email to or the website.

We look forward to interacting with you and hopefully actually seeing you at events in the not so distant future.

With our very best wishes, 
The Alumni Relations Team.
